You are viewing a stunning image of a
Civil War Battle created by Thomas Nast in 1864. The image is captioned,
"The Campaign in Virginia, - On To Richmond!". The illustration shows a
dramatic view of a Civil War Battle. It reflects the growing confidence
in the North in the middle of 1864 that they had turned the corner and
could win the Civil War. The picture shows a determined group of union
soldiers marching forward. The Union Flag is tattered, but is still
proudly flying over the unit. The soldiers march on, even as their
comrades are falling by their side.
